The idea is to have a realistic type of car in the header with the MZR theme, so TRP "white bodies" are acceptable for submission into the contest, but we would like to stay away from the Atomic/PN Pan Car Bodies.

The Route 246 AutoScales don't qualify for the competition since they are already painted!

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

I assume since the Mosler is an actual car, that is acceptable as well?

technically, you can purchase unpainted R246 bodies such as the BMW M3 GTR and Nissan 240Z. Your just not going to find them in shops domestically, at the moment.

Of course those two things put together mean that we're starting off our year of celebrations with a new Mini-ZRacer.com 10th Anniversary White Body Contest!!!

Your challenge (as it was last time) is to create the coolest Mini-ZRacer.com-themed body, starting from a blank Kyosho Mini-Z White Body (enhanced AutoScales are not eligible). The body must have the MZR logo or "mini-zracer.com" somewhere on it, and we suggest using MZR colors (red, white, black, silver/grey), but this is not mandatory.

As with the last MZR White Body Contest, we have Black & White MZR Decals, and Black and White MZR Stickers, available for purchase at shop.tinyrc.com, as well as a wide range of Kyosho White Bodies. To make it easier to find just the right canvas for your creation, the White Bodies now have their own subcategory in the AutoScale and Bodies category! To sweeten the deal we're also offering 10% off of our already discounted Kyosho White Bodies from now until February 28th with the coupon code MZR10WB!!!

The contest officially starts today, and the deadline is March 6, 2011. Submissions will be via the Mini-ZRacer.com 10th Anniversary White Body Contest Gallery. In addition to the submitted picture, we ask that you take a few build-up photos, e.g. masking and first coats, etc., in order to prove ownership. You must paint your own body, bodies painted by someone else are not eligible.

We'd also like to thank HammerZ once again for his MZR Vitz design that has served us well for the last 4 years! Please post questions to this thread - can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
I would like to enter a body for this contest. Are we allowed to paint to logo on or do we have to use stickers?

Pretty sure you can paint it on, as long as ultimately it's the site logo on the car.

Yes, you can definitely paint the logo if you'd like. The only "rules" regarding design are that its the "coolest Mini-ZRacer.com-themed body", and "The body must have the MZR logo or "mini-zracer.com" somewhere on it". The stickers are decals are just available to make that part easier for people.

Happy designing everyone!!!

How are the designs going? Who will be the first to reveal their design in the Gallery?

Just wanted to remind everyone that if you haven't picked up your entry body yet, we're still offering 10% off of our already discounted Kyosho White Bodies from now until February 28th with the coupon code MZR10WB!!! This includes the new Kyosho Mini-Z Sauber Mercedes C9 High Downforce Configuration MR-02-LM White Body and the Kyosho Mini-Z Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP Kit MR-015-HM White Body. Mini-Z Racer + Mini Cooper? It could work! Besides, if you haven't figured it out yet, I love a gimmick!

Also, digging around in the shop.tinyrc.com vault, I found a bunch of Kyosho Dflex Decal sheets that never made it into the shop - until now! Maybe they'll be helpful in completing your awesome designs!

The deadline for submissions is March 6, 2011, but feel free to submit your entry anytime!

well, i finished up all the paint work today. from start to finish, maybe 8 hours of work over 2 days. it went much faster than i had expected as i've recently had a bit of practice with this design. with temps at 20F and below, that was certainly motivation to get it done quickly.

here is a little teaser.
